wCrea surprise mTw in thriller
What announced itself as just another national WCG qualifier eventually turned into a major surprise, as Denmark sees wCrea claim number one spot in front of mTw, to represent national pride at the upcoming WCG 2010 Grand Final, in Los Angeles.
Against all odds, wCrea has taken the best out of mTw, not just by giving them a good run for their money, but by actually surpassing them in an exciting match-up. First map into the dispute, train, wCrea definitely took the situation in their own hands by bagging the pistol round as well as the 5 consecutive rounds which followed. mTw sought to quickly get back into the game, yet failed, seeing the half-time score standing at 12-3 to their rivals' advantage. Switching sides didn't do Danny 'zonic' Sørensen and his colleagues any good either, as wCrea quickly closed stakes at 16-10.
The following map, tuscan, saw a totally different face of mTw. This time around the guys were far more composed and in control of the match. After claiming pistol round as T, they continued dominating up until 6-0, when things actually started moving in the other direction. wCrea came back strong and closed first half at 8-7 to their advantage. Switching sides, mTw pulled their tactics together, seeing themselves in the position of closing the match at 16-8, after successfully bagging 9 consecutive rounds.
Given the momentum they were in, not many people would have predicted the eventual outcome of the match at the beginning of the third deciding map, dust2. Slowly but surely, the situation levelled up, seeing both teams exchange rounds equally. wCrea took both pistol rounds, yet mTw bounced back each time leaving no room for error. First half was closed at 8-7 to wCrea's advantage, something that Michael 'Friis' Jørgensen and his colleagues eventually capitalized upon when they switched sides. Dust2 ended in an exciting and unpredictable 16-9, seeing the dedication of the underdogs succeed.
wCrea will now be the only team representing Denmark at upcoming World Cyber Games Counter-Strike Grand Final in Los Angeles, USA.
